Barry’s eye for a horse is unrivalled. His purchases come at all sorts of prices, with all sorts of pedigree backgrounds.
Barry’s a trend setter, making fashion for others to follow, but only years later.
And he’s a seller of note, too, nowadays.
So here are tomorrow’s trends.
Here’s what Barry bought at the Cape Premier Sale.
#22 Jet Master filly, half sister to Gr1 winner Talahatchie, 3-part sister to Gr1 placed Lizarre; from Klifdrif Stud, selling as agent for WJ Engelbrecht – R1 million

Trading sure is fun!
